"Road Signs And Rock Songs" as written by and Kris Roe....
Postcards on the floor
But this pen can't write loneliness no more.
Waking up all alone
On the opposite side of the coast.

I'm committed to insecurity and you.
And love is overrated.
It leaves you devastated
Heart ripped in two

Roadside state of mind
Boulevard of broken dreams washed out this
Time after time I was lost and looking
But knew I'd never find
What is mine in a world that's so unkind.

And love is overrated.
It leaves you devastated.

The only things I know are
Road signs and rock songs and lonely hotel rooms.
But still I need you here, what's new?

It's 6am. Las Vegas doesn't look so cool
Once the sun come up.
I draw the blinds and I dream of you.

I'm committed to all these memories of you.
And love is overrated.
It leaves you devastated.
Love is overrated.

    General Commentthe line "i'm committed to insecurity and you" is one of those lyrics that you can't find words worthy of describing it. it's so simple and yet so emotionally stirring.
